Abstract

Upogebia rupicola, a new species of upogebiid shrimp from Okinawa Island, Ryukyu Islands, lives in burrows made in siltstone substrates in the intertidal zone. It is similar to U. carinicauda (Stimpson, 1860), widely known from the Indo-West Pacific, but is distinguished from the latter by the structure and armament of the first pereopod and the armament of the lateral ridge of the anterior carapace.
